LOBE DEN HERREN, O MEINE SEELE (not to be confused with the more familiar LOBE DEN HERREN at 253) is a German chorale in AAB bar form. Well-known in Germany but less so in North America, this anonymous tune was published in 1665 in an appendix to the hymnal Neu-vermehrte Christlich Seelen-Harfe (1664) as a setting for a versification of Psalm 103 ("Praise the LORD, O my soul. . ."; hence the tune title). Sing in parts or in unison with vigor and rhythmic precision, using two broad beats per measure.
